I have been waiting for an assessment for 4 months I believe I will be assessed by atos
I rang a welfare rights helpline number and was told some people have been waiting over 12 months
my response to that was so some people will die while waiting for PIP.
Its an absolute disgrace in a country like the UK but in a drive to save money the government has targeted the wrong people
The other thing I would say is why would I personally need to be independently assessed as I have a condition PD thats going to get regretfully worse its not like I have caught a cold or am making out I have some mystery illness. I mean why don't they just write to my GP and the Walton centre they should be able to tell them all they need to know.
Why I will tell you why because by dragging you down the interview road if you don't give them all the information or make a mistake in what you say which can happen to anyone they wont allow your claim and theres another few bob saved
Thanks for reading and I do wish you all success...............Paul
